Overcoming Writing Obstacles: Refining Your Niche

Part 1 of the “6 Ways to Overcome Obstacles and Write High-Quality Articles in Large Quantities” video series.

Gary’s back! And this time he’s here to help you discover six different ways of removing the obstacles that may be keeping you from finding that perfect balance between quantity and quality in your article writing and marketing efforts.

In this first episode, Gary shares the positive results he achieved when he refined his niche, focused his efforts and clarified his brand.

For some people, Gary’s accent can be a little difficult to understand. So here’s an brief outline of what he had to say:

  • It Can Happen to Anybody – Many authors reach a psychological plateau in their article writing that prevents them from writing high-quality articles in large quantities.
     
  • Write for the Long Tail – Gary suggests focusing your efforts on one particular aspect of your niche instead of trying to reach the masses.
     
  • Refine Your Niche – Find your favorite niche and write to that niche exclusively.
     
  • Benefits – Focusing your writing efforts helps clarify your brand and speed up your research.

Watch for Part 2 of this video series in the next week or so. In the meantime, analyze your article marketing efforts and see if you need to refine your niche. Then leave a comment and tell us how it went.

I like this, Quantity and Quality. Quality equal Quantity but Quantity does equal Quality.

Refreshing presentation. Pretty basic information BUT sometimes we need to have the basics hammered into our heads and reminded of them because we sometimes tend to make it more complicated then it really doesn’t have to be.

Writing for the long tail and refining your niche are two great recommendations that I have always found to be useful.

Also, is there a text version available other than just the summary?

Good going Gary! Especially like your little friend, he is very knowledgeable and helpful.

My niche is E-Books. Should this be refined to specific kind? I had been thinking of expanding to include reader’s corner and others.

Judith,

That’s something only you can answer, but my first reaction is that just “E-Books” seems a bit broad. Anytime you can define your niche with one word, it’s probably not refined enough.

You may want to consider a specific genre of E-Books or one particular aspect of the medium.

Don’t misunderstand, refining your niche doesn’t mean you can’t expand. On the contrary, it should give you a clear direction in WHICH to expand. Think depth vs. breadth.

I think most people miss the refining their niche part. I read blogs all day and many of them have no real direction just stuff on top of stuff. For me it was a two year process of drilling down and focusing on what I really was writing about. Close in on your niche to get better and more hits.

Looking forward to the next post.
